    Presentation Overview

    XSLT - for people who don't have time for being beginners

    Learn some of the beginning pitfalls from an intermediate XSLT developer who still remembers the struggles of learning XSLT. The intent of this talk is not to teach XSLT but to talk about the "gotcha" language details.

    SourceCast - a community development collaboration environment

    CollabNet SourceCast platform is a Web-based development environment that enables geographically dispersed groups of developers to collaborate on software projects. It includes tools for: revision control, issue tracking, mailing list creation and management, and Web-based administration.

    Shane will give an overview of the SourceCast platform and discuss its features and capabilities.

    The NetBeans tools platform

    At its most basic, NetBeans is a Java IDE, written in Java. But there are several other interesting ways to look at it: A tools platform that allows a developer to work with, for example, their debugger, profiler and UML tools of choice, seamlessly integrated into a single environment and interface. This is because NetBeans has an extremely extensible, modular design, with well documented APIs that go far beyond what other IDE's offer. At the more basic level, the NetBeans core can be used as a generic large desktop application for non-IDE related applications - several major companies have already released products that use the NetBeans core.

    This presentation will cover the basics of NetBeans, its architecture, what is being done with it, and further cover some of the extension APIs and ways it can be extended.
